    Below is a copy of an email first sent to the Autocat 
list back in August of '98 by Gene Kinnaly at LC (I have his 
permission to post this). I've found it very useful over the 
past few years, as it is a good guide to follow.

We have used a couple of informal tables in our shelflisting 
of materials arranged by Table 40.  I don't know if this is 
online anywhere.

1) Biography and criticism. General works.  .xZ5-999

  main entry beginning      use:

   A-B                      Z5-599
   C-H                      Z6-699
   I-N                      Z7-799
   O-T                      Z8-899
   U-Z                      Z9-999

2) Separate works. By title.  .xA61-Z458

  title beginning with:     use:

   a number                 A612-A618
   Aa-Af                    A62-69
   Ag-Al                    A7-79
   Am-Ar                    A8-89
   As-Az                    A9-99

   Za-Zd                    Z2-29
   Ze-Zl                    Z3-39
   Zm-Zz                    Z4-458

I hope this helps.
